Autograph letter to "Mon très cher Directeur" (most probably François-Joseph Fétis, Director of the Conservatoire), signed in full
by STOLTZ, Rosine 1815-1903
In 1837, Stoltz made her Paris Opéra debut as Rachel in Halévy's La Juive. She remained there for ten years, and created a number of roles, including Ascanio in Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini (1838) and Léonor in Donizetti's La Favorite (1840). Scandal forced her to resign in 1847, but she returned in 1854. She was especially praised for the intensity of her acting, and her vocal color and broad palette of timbres. Mary Ann Smart in Grove Music Online.. 1 page of a bifolium. Octavo. N.d. In ink. On stationery with a place name, monogram, and Paris address embossed at upper left corner.
